“It has struck me that all men’s misfortunes spring from the single cause that they are unable to stay quietly in one room.”

"Noble deeds that are concealed are most esteemed."

"Do you wish people to think well of you? Don't speak well of yourself. "

Human beings must be known to be loved; but Divine beings must be loved to be known.

"People are generally better persuaded by the reasons which they have themselves discovered than by those which have come in to the mind of others."


Blaise Pascal, (1623-1662), was a French mathematician, physicist, and philosopher. He laid the foundation for the modern theory of probabilities, formulated what came to be known as Pascal’s principle of pressure, and propagated a religious doctrine that taught the experience of God through the heart rather than through reason.
